Our prediction for this Copa del Rey match:
Estadio El Sadar will host Wednesday’s Copa del Rey game between Osasuna and Sevilla. Los Rojillos are undefeated in 2023, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as slim favourites to win this tie. The good news for the hosts is that Lucas Torro is back from suspension, but both Pena and Vidal continue to miss out with injuries. Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Cadiz, and they managed to get one, with Ivan Rakitic scoring a late winner from the penalty spot.
The Andalusians aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but beating Osasuna in Pamplona is easier said than done. A close match is on the horizon at “El Sadar”, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Rafa Mir is pushing for a start, whereas Marcos Acuna returns from suspension.
